“Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations points us toward something beyond inherent worth and dignity. It points us to the larger community. It gets at collective responsibility. It reminds us that treating people as human beings is not simply something we do one-on-one, but something that has systemic implications and can inform our entire cultural way of being.

“Compassion is something that we can easily act on individually. We can demonstrate openness, give people respect, and treat people with kindness on our own. But we need one another to achieve equity and justice.

“Justice, equity, and compassion are all part of the same package. Just as the second Principle overlaps with the first, so it is related to the seventh Principle—the interdependent web of all existence.”

—Rev. Emily Gage, Unity Temple, Chicago, IL (read more from Emily in The Seven Principles in Word and Worship, ed. Ellen Brandenburg)

The Rustic Mechanicals Present The Merry Wives of Windsor

“Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness.”
― William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor

Gretchen Ross and Kaici Lore headline this production as Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, the merry wives, with Josh Brooks as Master Ford and Justin Grow as Master Page, their cuckolded husbands. Jason A. Young takes on the iconic role of Sir John Falstaff.

“I encourage our community to forget what they think they know about Shakespeare,” said Oliveto. “This play is far from uptight, stuffy, or difficult to understand; rather, this play would be more at home living in the world of the Three Stooges or I Love Lucy.”
